Reliable calls to india with Reliable IP phone

Learn how i make unlimited calls to India for absolutely free using VOIP

Looking for chep calls to india?. Here is one more options to make cheap calls to india. My previous article focussed on Linq.in which offered unlimited calls to india for as low as $10/ month. I just came across Reliable IP phone (Reliableiphone) which is offering unlimited calling to india for as low as $5.99 per month using VOIP technology. If you are often calling one particular number from US and the receiver in india do not have a computer,then you can take advantage of Reliable IP phone.

 

I haven’t heard about this company (Reliableiphone) before but seems to be a dependable company. All you need is a internet connnection in INDIA (BSNL data one) and you are all set.

The basic plan offers unlimited incoming and 100 free outgoing minutes. Once you sign up by paying the setup fee of $60, they ship the ATA (Analog telephone adapter) pre-configured to your home,after which you can connect to the modem and start recieving calls from US.

One disadvantage of Reliable IP phone over Linq.in is that they offer an US number to which you can call. But you dont get local area code. I can see that currently they offer only one area code 630 for whole of ILLINIOS state. The disadvantage is you incurr local call charges for calls to that number unless you are in 630 area code. Ofcourse you can call at night using your CELL phone free minutes or you are subscribed to unlimited nationwide calling for your US phone. Linq.in offers 1800 toll free number for such calls. Alternative is to subcribe FREEDOM plan for $16.99 for unlimited calls from india and ask your folks to call you back. Bit costlier than Linq.in

I spoke to their customer service folks in HYD and they seems to be nice guys. Their product works well with BSNL internet connection. For folks who are affected by SUNROCKET closure, there are SEVERAL OFFERS like No Upfront installation charges and one month free service.

  1. I’m using the IP Phone, With my exp i’ill tell u the best solution, If u r going to call only one home in india.. get 2 a/c with SIP phone, it’s free. and get 2 ATA’s one for u one for india.configurations is easy.. just need to setup the firewall and it might take some time.. otherwise it’;s easy to setup. then call b/w thsese SIP phones are free. If you need incomming US phone number.. use IPKall and configure teh sipphone with that.. budget.. around 50 USD for an ATA. Afetr theis everything is free except the Broadband.

  2. Thanks Sathish, One the best comments in this blog. Thanks much. I had done some research previously but was never able to understand who would provide the VOIP service and how phone number concept works.
    One visit to IPKALL clarified all my doubts. I am definately going to try this. But for the benefit of our users, please tell me if you bought ATA’s or IPPHONE. where did you purchase the devices. Any sugesstions.

  3. Uday,

    I bought a Sipura 1001 ATA. it costed under 40 USD. you can look at the hardware available in VOIPDW.com.

    I feel the ATA are better to buy than a phone.. Bcoz u can use the existing phone.
    Now GrandCentral supports Siphone/GizmoProject, you can route the calls to your sipphone. and you have the loacl number also :)

    I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF THIS IS CHEAPER THAN VONAGE. ALSO WHEN THE PHONE CALL IS RECEIVED FROM US IN INDIA WILL IT NOT GET ADDED TO MY INTERNET DOWNLOAD LIMIT , VOICE MAIL IS ABOUT 1 MB PER MINUTE.pLEASE CLARIFY

  5. uday

    dear THYAGARAJAN ,

    Vonage is paid, Gizmo is free. you wont incurr any charges in India except for Internet charges.

    Yes what ever bandwidth you use is billed to your internet minutes.

    You have to buy one time the ATA.

    Dear Mr Uday

    THE VOICE MAIL CONSUMES ABOUT 1 MB PER MINUTE. tHIS IS OKAY IF THE USER IS UNDER UNLIMITED DOWNLOAD PLAN. UNDER LIMITED DOWNLOAD PLANS THE USER WILL END UP PAYING TO INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER WHICH MAY NOT BE ECONOMICAL

    I tried to use the service with my sunrocket device, and it never worked. I tried to cancel the service, and they will take forever to cancel it..I asked them to change the device..and after calls everyday for almost a week, the response was minimal. The attitude of the customer service was so great that it almost implied that they have enough number of customers and do not need any more. The website does not let you remove credit card details from the profile, so it will be automatically deducted every month, even if you dont want to use the service. Well, finally I lost my cool and headed to call credit card people to dispute the charge. Lets see how much more time I need to waste on this trivial issue.

    The Worst service.Please don’t go for it.
    I had this service but it hardly worked.
    When ever we call customer service they ask to arrange for a PC.
    If we did so it works only for 2-3 days and again it stops working.
    Every time we have to connect to a PC which is a bit difficult for parents.

    Totally unsatisfied with Reliable Team. I would say one of the worst and slowest team I ever came across. I subscribed to this phone service. I wouldn’t really say it was a great service, since the phone did not work many times. My cousin also subscribed and he had worst problems with this service. finally when I moved out of the country, I requested to unsubscribe and the request took more than 3 months to be processed and they charged me for all those months when I never used the service. even upon several requests, they never refunded any amount. sucks big time
